# Question #aa745

##### 1 Answer

#### Explanation:

Assuming that your goal here is to perform a **dilution** of the sample, then you can say that the ratio that exists between the volume of the *diluted solution* and the volume of the *stock solution* **must be equal** to the **dilution factor**.

In other words, for any dilution, the dilution factor tells you the ratio between the volume of the diluted solution and the volume of the stock solution.

#"DF" = V_"diluted"/V_"stock"#

So in order to perform a **dilution**, you need to have a dilution factor equal to

#V_"diluted" = "DF" * V_"stock"#

#V_"diluted" = 10 * "0.60 mL"#

#color(darkgreen)(ul(color(black)(V_"diluted" = "6.0 mL")))#

I'll leave the answer rounded to two **sig figs**

This means that in order to perform this dilution, you need to add enough water to the
